The U17 division has seen the Mustangs put together a stellar campaign, and they’ll be looking to wrap up an undefeated season after putting together an 11-0-1 record and outscoring their opposition 125-37 in the process.

Moose Jaw opens the U17 playoffs against the QCMBL Chill (2-9-1) on Friday night and with a win there will taking the winner of the Swift Current Rampage (6-5-1) and Weyburn Thrashers (3-8-1) in the ‘A’ final on Saturday afternoon.
